There’s a storm coming. It was a bright, blue-sky day, with brilliant sunshine and just enough random cloud cover to bring a spot of relief now and then. And all of a sudden darkness rolls in and takes over, chasing the light away.
As this raging storm raced across the sky, bringing strong winds, bolts of lightning, and pelting rain, I got away from it as quickly as I could.
“I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.” Psalm 55:8.
When a storm comes upon us, what should we do? Where do we go? The psalmist gives us wisdom here, advising that he would hurry to his place of shelter, far away from the storm. Where is his shelter? It’s the Presence of the Almighty God.
When storms come into your life, what do you do? Do you try to get through them on your own? Do you think you can stand against the tempest on your own strength?
Just like I hurried to a place of shelter and refuge as this storm arrived, even more do I want to rush to the safety of my God when the storms of life come upon me. It’s not the time to abandon the faith that has anchored me so many times. Run to the safety of your God.
